Chrome 66 quietly supports Oculus Rift
In the latest release of Chrome 66, Google quietly added support for the Oculus Rift. This means that users can wear this high-performance head-mounted device to surf the web in a VR environment and use compatible WebVR applications.
According to theverge, this feature is currently in an experimental state, only supports Google Chrome browser on the Windows 10 platform, which means that users can not experience WebVR applications through Oculus Rift on other platforms such as Mac.
As of now, most of the web page VR experiences are related to the mobile version of Chrome. Last year, Google began to add support for Android phones compatible with Daydream, so users do not need to trigger other applications to access VR-enabled websites and watch VR videos in the mobile-end Chrome browser. In September 2017, Google released Daydream View, which brought users to access any website in a VR environment.
Now that Google has added support for Oculus devices, it means that users can experience web immersive experiences on high-performance VR head-display devices. However, most of the current web page VR content is still targeted at the mobile terminal, and there is not much to view for high-performance web page VR.
